Alot of thoughts travel in and out of my mind.
Many of them reach a point of no return, either I completely let it go or allow it to take root.
Some still float….
Until someone is willing to hear them.
Sometimes I get so excited with passion that they abruptly burst from my tongue without any hesitation.
I do my best to allow word’s inspired by the Lord to pass my lips…at times they come off so crude and ungodly…
I just want to do the right things for God…to help people…
I want people to see His love…no excuses, yet I am already coming up with some…
My husband and I have undertaken this Financial Peace University journey so that we do money and stewardship His way.
Struggles to keep up with the “American Dream” or what I imagined my life would look like externally sometimes creep up inside of me and its hard to trust His plan.
Sometimes I wish we could be like everyone else…or at least a lot of people..living life in the moment at any expense…worrying about it later..
I shrug off the self pity and move on.
God has been so true to His word.
I had worked so hard this past summer to shrink down some of my undergraduate loans only to see it all get setback by my new grad school loan.
About 3 months ago, I prayed about these loans coming out for graduate school. My husband and I were already on a tight budget to tackle our previous debt, but we weren’t as serious with the new debt lingering at my doorstep with a big suitcase and a few of its friends. Debt was planning on staying for awhile in our lives…
God answered me through prayer that we would not have to take out a loan for this upcoming semester.
Now of course saving enough funds in 3-4months on an already tight budget seemed impossible…
Just earlier this week, we thought we’d have to take out a small loan, and we were at peace with this.
The other day I received a graduate assistantship that would cover some of the costs, leaving the bill for us much easier to pay…
Therefore we will not be needing a loan!
Thank You Lord. Your word is true and Your love is strong…
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight
At this moment, Psalm 47
For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah. A psalm.
1 Clap your hands, all you nations;
shout to God with cries of joy.
2 For the Lord Most High is awesome,
the great King over all the earth.
3 He subdued nations under us,
peoples under our feet.
4 He chose our inheritance for us,
the pride of Jacob, whom he loved.[b]
5 God has ascended amid shouts of joy,
the Lord amid the sounding of trumpets.
6 Sing praises to God, sing praises;
sing praises to our King, sing praises.
7 For God is the King of all the earth;
sing to him a psalm of praise.
8 God reigns over the nations;
God is seated on his holy throne.
9 The nobles of the nations assemble
as the people of the God of Abraham,
for the kings[c] of the earth belong to God;
he is greatly exalted.
Thus far we have been so blessed by both our families and a multitude of friends who have given us so much in ways of love and encouragement . Thank you. Thank You Lord for placing such amazing people in our lives!
